    Speaker amp equivalent of JDS Labs Atom 2?

    Just picked up a JDS Labs Atom 2 stack (DAC and amp) for my headphones. Really impressed with the build quality, options and apparent transparency of the sound. It made me curious what the equivalent combo of performance and value would be for a compact speaker amp if you weren't including the...

    Frustrating issues with HE400i (2016), JDS Labs Atom amp, and Schiit IEMagni (rant)

    This is somewhat of a rant but also me genuinely needing help. For my first mid-fi headphone, I chose Hifiman HE400i (2016) because of its very low price, planar tech, and respect the line has. I went with the JDS Labs Atom stack, but that turned out bad because of the mids sounding very...

    How much power is optimal for Hifiman HE-400i?

    How much power is optimal for Hifiman HE-400i? I keep hearing that 2W per channel is needed, but Amir brags on HE-400i bass in his review of the JDS Labs Atom amp, which has 1W per channel. I am wondering if the Schiit Heresy might sound better with HE400i because of the 2.4W of power per...

    What is wrong with the system or what did I do wrong?

    What is wrong with the system or what did I do wrong? First listens with HE400i/JDS Labs Atom stack, and voices sound like there is a huge hole/recessed/bad connection/faint, along with sibilance. The rest sounds really amazing - bass, detail, imaging, air, high instruments, etc. HE400i plugged...

    Need help deciding between the Schiit Heresy and JDS Labs Atom

    I'm sort of torn between the two. I've read both reviews and still unsure From what I've gathered so far looking around is that no one can hear a difference between the two?? The only thing I've heard mainly is that the Heresy has more power but only slightly? ____ heresy Newer Release...

    DAC and AMP pairing recommendations for Sennheiser HD700

    Hello my dear friends. I am going to acquire some Sennheiser HD700 and I am in doubt that audio string will be assembled for this one. I'm thinking between a Topping D50s and a JDS Atom Amp, but I don't know if these two will make the Sennheiser sound very cold(very digital), I prefer...

    Used Lake People G109A vs JDS Labs Atom

    It has been a stressful two weeks trying to find a good amp/dac for my first desktop setup. I've been using a Fiio A3 and X3 Gen 2 for a while with my HD6XX, and wanted to go desktop since I barely listen on the go anymore. The past 2 weeks I've cycled through many options for around the...
